FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHANGE AN ELECTRICAL CORD PLUG END IN 2-MINUTES WITH PHILLIPS QCP™
Santa Fe Springs, CA (May 7, 2009) The number one reason most aftermarket electrical cords fail is due to pin push out in the plug end. Replacing a new plug end to salvage the still valuable used cord can cost more than $30.00, almost as much as a brand new one. Why bother with this time-consuming, costly chore when you can swap a cartridge on a Phillips QCP™ electrical assembly in less than 2 minutes?
The Phillips QCP™ also prevents shorts and other electrical malfunctions by putting an end to wires pulling free from electrical terminals inside the plug housing, and stops moisture and corrosion from creeping into the cable – because all the terminals are sealed in a molded connection. If you ever have to repair it, you can count on a fix in less time than it takes to fuel up.
Up until now, the Phillips QCP™ has only been available on premium trailer cords, so fleets and owner operators using standard trailer cords could not take advantage of the QCP™ time-saving design. Phillips recognized that fleets using lower cost trailer cables could reduce their costs even further if they were able to replace just the cartridge on their assemblies too, so today QCP™ is an option on all Phillips electrical cables.
The QCP™ was one of 2005’s best new products and is available on Phillips ABS LECTRACOIL™, ABS PERMACOIL™ and PERMACOIL™ cables. Inexpensive QCP™ cartridges (part number 16-125) should be included in a mechanics tool box, the fleet’s parts room, and in the glove box so they are readily available for routine maintenance and emergency repairs at the scales. All Phillips electrical assemblies are chemical and abrasion resistant and have the industry’s best re-coil memory. Stop wasting time with used trailer cords by asking for QCP™ by name at any OE Dealer or Authorized Warehouse Distributor.
